daughter, russia, and sherrod is deciding if he is going to take a trip to israel and figure out farm until a completely different country. you just had your baby, the. >> yes. when i married him, i realized i was marrying a person who was married to the movement. i admire that in him. so, i had to steer -- share him with everyone always. >> but at it beautiful the way you write about when you had to resign and you called charles on the phone, and charles was the one who soothed your spirit as you were driving home on that day, july 2010. so, we have something in common. you made a trip to ghana, you write about that in the book. going to ghana, going to stand in that space where potentially your an an -- ancestors, african slaves, may have come from. >> my goodness. the reason why i had the opportunity to go i had applied for a kellogg scholarship and didn't think i would get it, but during the time of the interview, one person asked me, shirley, is there something you've always wanted to do and you never had chance to do? i said, yes. i always wanted to go to africa. he said, where. i s
